I figured the blades and redlines were probably expensive .. but holy $hit! That's just downright wrong! Especially when you figure that into canadian $$ .. tha'ts like 15 - 30k!! You can get yourself and DAMN nice car for that here!

============================

That might have been mine. Last weekend we were in the Munising area. I blew a belt and it blew through the cowling. It bent a protective piece of aluminum that rubbed on the clutch. It made an awful noise like a lawn mower, but it wasn't blown up. Anyway, I riveted the piece down, riveted aluminum over the hole in the cowling, and good to go for the rest of the season. They will replace the cowling under warranty in the off season. There's only a couple of weeks left in the season, and I didn't want it down for such a minor thing. Anyway, its a fun sled to ride. Interested to see how it stands up to the REV and/or the Firecat. I think the REV and the cat will beat it in the corners, as mine is a long track. Have to check out the comfort though. Mine is nice. It's fun to ride and comfortable. Not really worth all the big bucks. But it is (or was) different and fun. It weighs 435 pounds, which is pretty good for a long track. Got the new M16 suspension, which is sweet!


I want to ride every day, all day, as fast as I can.

I think both the Rev and the firecat are pretty good nock offs. The rev is getting great reviews. I think the firecat would be cool too because of the longer track and high horsepower.

I saw a Blade a couple of weeks ago on the trail. It certainly turned all our heads, and caused a lot of talk at the next pit stop.
